April 2009

Lost Last Month

Seventy-two-year-old soap opera Guiding Light, after announcing the air-date of its final episode. Millions of computer files, destroyed by the annual April Fools virus known as Conficker. Real work at the FBI, presumably put on hold in order to probe the internet leak of the upcoming film X-Men Origins:  Wolverine. One way to make a living in Bangladesh, when the government outlawed begging. Two hundred and seven lives, after a 6.3 magnitude earthquake hits L'Aquila, Italy. Faith in Afghanistan's future, as the government reviews a recently approved version of Sharia law that legalizes spousal rape. Faith in the security of our electrical grid, allegedly infiltrated by Chinese and Russian cyber-spies. Not an ounce of faith in the skill of U.S. Navy SEALs, called in to rescue Captain Richard Phillips of the MV Maersk Alabama from his Somali abductors. One semi-Republican senator, when Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania switches to the Democratic Party.
